MIDWEEK ME TIME: 7/19/2017

It’s time for another Midweek Me Time!  I have really begun to look forward to these evenings where I share a little book love then unplug for the night to read and relax.  I HIGHLY recommend this, or something like it, to everyone.  I didn’t quite realize how much I was online and/or on my electronic devices until I decided to step away from it for an evening!  It really is remarkable what you can get done when you take a night off from social media and the internet.

I am hoping to relax tonight because I have not felt 100% all week.  I think a nice at-home spa night will do me good!

I am currently reading one of the book of the month options for my online book club, Buxom Book BeautiesFollow Me Back by A.V. Geiger, which released June 6, 2017.

SYNOPSIS:

Tessa Hart’s world feels very small. Confined to her bedroom with agoraphobia, her one escape is the online fandom for pop sensation Eric Thorn. When he tweets to his fans, it’s like his speaking directly to her…

Eric Thorn is frightened by his obsessive fans. They take their devotion way too far. It doesn’t help that his PR team keeps posting to encourage their fantasies.

When a fellow pop star is murdered at the hands of a fan, Eric knows he has to do something to shatter his online image fast—like take down one of his top Twitter followers. But Eric’s plan to troll @TessaHeartsEric unexpectedly evolves into an online relationship deeper than either could have imagined. And when the two arrange to meet IRL, what should have made for the world’s best episode of Catfish takes a deadly turn…

Told through tweets, direct messages, and police transcripts.

I have read up through Chapter 6, so far, and it is an interesting start.  I would like to make a good bit of progress in my reading tonight.  This book seems all too relatable in this techy, modern world.  Have you read it?

I chose some items from the Velaris Dreams box from Wick and Fable to help me unwind!  I’m not going to lie, I chose the candles, in part, because they match my book and bookmark really well!  The candles, though, were also my two favorite scents from the Velaris Dreams box, so it was truly a win-win for tonight.  The two candles are Court of Nightmares and Velaris Dreams.  I am terrible at describing scents, I have learned, so I am simply going to state that I think these candles smell amazing!  They also have beautiful labels.

My bath and body products were also included in the Velaris Dreams box from Wick and Fable!  I plan on relaxing in the tub for a bit, so I am going to try the Night Court Soaking Salts (um, hello, gorgeous!), and I’ll follow up with the Star Mist Nourishing Oil.  I have a feeling that I will be going to be smelling quite lovely!  I was excited to hear the Wick and Fable was rolling with some of these spa products as part of their shop.

I cannot forget to mention that I am using a gorgeous bookmark by the wonderful Brittney at Reverie and Ink!  You can’t see it here, but it is her “Coffee & Books” bookmark, and it is so pretty!  She has some of my favorite bookish designs, so please go visit her page(s).

I linked the bookstagrams and Etsy shops above, so give them a follow, and consider supporting their small businesses.

So, now is about the time that I am going to completely sign offline and RELAX!  I hope you take a little time for you, too! xo
